35 Best GIFs of the 2013 College Football Season

best college football gifs 2013

The 2013 college football regular season may not be officially in the books until Navy destroys Army this weekend in Annapolis. However, the bowl invitations have already been handed out, and you could probably count the number of people who are genuinely excited to watch that game on one hand. So, for all intents and purposes, the season is cooked.

What does that mean? Well, for starters, it means we now have to wait two and a half long weeks for any good college football. (Sorry, we’re not too pumped up to watch East Carolina play Ohio in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl.) However, on the bright side, it also means stepping back and taking stock of everything we’ve seen on the collegiate gridiron this year. And that, in turn, means a list of awesome college football GIFs.

Ready to see the year’s best moments preserved in infinite looping animated images? Then start clicking those arrows.

 

35. San Jose State Hurdler

Right off the bat, the San Jose State Spartans prove you don’t have to be a powerhouse program in a powerhouse conference to pull off a jaw-dropping play.

 

34. Michigan Hurdler

Then again, the guys in the big leagues can do that sort of thing too. Here is MU’s Devin Funchess leaping like a freaking gazelle.

 

33. Fat Guy Hurdler

Of course, the greatest hurdler of the year is Kent State’s Nate Terhune. While he wasn’t quite as majestic as Michigan’s Funchess, you have to keep in mind that this guy is a 6’4″ 265-pound DEFENSIVE LINEMAN.

This guy is my hero.

 

32. Crunch

Nebraska had the same overall record as Minnesota this year. That probably hurt more than this brutal sack. 

 

31. Persistence Pays

Iowa’s Mark Weisman was not going to be tackled by anybody.

 

30. Jordan Lynch Is a Beast

Just in case you were wondering why Northern Illinois’s Jordan Lynch was one of the four quarterbacks named as 2013 Heisman finalists…this is why.

 

29. Nick O'Leary's Reverse Tackle

FYI, Jameis Winston is not the only playmaker on the FSU roster.

 

28. So Close, Yet So Far

This is newly minted NCAA Division I FCS Abeline Christian University coming up just three yards short of a miraculous game-winning touchdown against the New Mexico State Aggies.

 

27. Red Lightning

The man. The myth. The legend. He is Red Lightning.

 

26. The Winston Heisman Hanshake

This probably is not Winston’s actual reaction to the news that he would not be charged with rape. But it is how I imagine it would have looked.

 

25. Life of an Equipment Manager

What, you want a high five? Oh, no. You want me to spit on your glove. Ooookay.

 

24. Fog Stampede

This kid is lucky to be alive. Or at least, I assume he is alive. I don’t remember hearing about a Marshall equipment manager getting trampled to death.

 

23. Baylor Fans Are Weird

Baylor fans get the award for weirdest fans of the 2013 college football season.

Congratulations?

 

22. Throw Like Tebow

The SEC held a contest during halftime of their championship game in which two students competed for a $100,000 scholarship. This is the kid who won.

And speaking of freshman Heisman trophy-winning quarterbacks…

 

17. Gilbert Scramble

Manziel and Winston weren’t the only QBs who made big plays this year, however. This is Souther Methodist’s Garrett Gilbert, being awesome.

 

16. Gator vs. Gator

15. Finger Tip Catch

11. Duck's One-Handed Catch

amazing catch - best college football gifs 2013

The Ducks got embarrassed by the 6-4 Arizona Wildcats by a score of 42-16 on November 23. But at least there was this.

 

10. Huskers' Immaculate Reception

As tough a season as Bo Pelini and Nebraska had, it could have been worse. At they are not Northwestern, which means they were on the lucky side of this bounce.

 

9. Cardinal Reels It In

This Ball state receiver thinks two-handed catches are overrated.

 

8. Red Raider's One-Handed Touchdown Grab

texas tech eric ward touchdown catch vs baylor - best college football gifs 2013

Texas Tech got clobbered by Baylor on November 16, but they’ll always have this catch.

 

7. Pure Magnetism

Is this even physically possible?

 

6. The Alabama Reach Around

Nope. It was this.

Tip your hat to UCF Black Knight J.J. Worton. That’s as good a catch as you’ll ever see anywhere.

 

4. The Immaculate Deflection

Auburn gets to play for the BCS National Championship. But they wouldn’t be there without a little bit of luck.

 

3. Disbelief

2. The Return

The week after Auburn stunned Georgia, they stunned Alabama.

FIN.
